      Autumn Festival Mix Gift
      Posted by : jazzdoll_2000

      Liss Note: To make a festive 4th of July Gift use red, white & blue Jelly beans in layers.
      Makes a great hostess gift! In a jar tied with a pretty ribbon, or a festive baggie with a topper -spice up any season or holiday, just change the color and flavor of the Jelly Belly beans!

      1 Tbs. sugar
      1 tsp. ground cinnamon
      2 cups prepared air-popped popcorn (microwave variety works great)
      1 cup bite-size crispy wheat squares (such as Wheat Chex cereal)
      1/2 cup dried cranberries
      2 1/2 cups Jelly Belly beans (mix Tangerine, A&W Root Beer & lemon
      2 cups fat-free pretzels
      non stick cooking spray

      In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. In large bowl, combine popcorn, cereal, and cranberries. Spray popcorn mixture lightly for 4-5 seconds with non-stick cooking spray.

      Quickly toss with sugar mixture.

      (This helps the sugar mixture stick to the popcorn). Stir in Jelly Belly beans and pretzels. Store in covered container

      Halloween/Fall: Licorice; Orange Juice, Island Punch and Green Apple jelly beans

      Thanksgiving: Cranberry, Grandma’s Pumpkin Pie and Hot Cider jelly beans

      Christmas: Cinnamon, Coconut and Green Apple jelly beans

      New Year’s Eve: Chocolate Pudding, Champagne Punch and Coconut jelly beans

      This would also be really cute at a baby shower. You could buy some cheap baby bottles & fill each of them with the mixture (with pink jelly beans for a girl or blue jelly beans for a boy) – and give these as part gifts! 🙂
